About the job:
We're seeking a full-stack, web engineer to join our engineering team!
You'll be joining a team of 4 engineers working on cutting edge game dev that mixes frontend React UI with webGL accelerated graphics.
As an engineering team, we are deeply ambitious. We built our own web-based engine, UI library, character generator, game CMS, combat system and more.
We think a lot about our craft as engineers. We involve everyone deeply in the product & design cycles, so you have input into what we build and why we're building it.
When it comes to the process of building, we strive towards the minimal amount of process needed to get things done. We build a lot of infrastructure in our code, so it feels like you can do a lot while writing relatively little.
You'll have deep institutional support, our founding team has three MIT engineers and we know what it takes to make a great engineering team and product.
As a team we have two main goals.
1) Grow the number of people who play tabletop RPGs
We think tabletop roleplaying games can be one of the most fun things in the world, but they're just so hard to get into and maintain. We want to make tabletop games much easier by turning them from something you play in your head to something you play like a video game, online and with your friends. We think 10x more people could be playing tabletop games if only they were a bit more modern.
2) Enable people to make a living making tabletop games
That said, there's no end to the creativity and imagination of people who make tabletop games and content. We think that if we 10x the number of people playing ttrpgs, creators should be the first to benefit.
Multiverse is built from day-one to have a marketplace where creators can make and sell games, characters, art, stories and more. We want people to be earning a living making content on Multiverse.
Our goal is not only to build a totally new kind of platform, but also a new kind of game company. We're fortunate to be well-funded and backed by some of the best investors in the industry, who have funded (or founded!) companies like Twitch, Riot Games, Oculus and PubG. We will continue to build a diverse team, and give them incredibly opportunities, room to grow, and strong support. We want to be the best job any of us have ever had. That means:
